The Seoul archdiocese has launched online confirmation classes in which faithful can prepare for the sacrament in just two days. The archdiocese’s Catholic Cyber Pastoral Office began offering the classes last week to make preparation for the sacrament easier and more convenient. Usually, confirmation classes take at least five weeks. Comprising 10 hour-long lectures, the class requires each person to take a test after each lecture. A person can watch up to five lectures and take five tests in a day. Armed with a certificate and with a little liturgy training, people can then be confirmed in their parish. “Our online classes help those who are too busy to attend classes held at fixed times,” said Father John Ri Ki-jung, director of the cyber ministry.
